StaticWind commented on Feature: Ari Pulkkinen's Quest to Turn the Vol...:

Great article! Video game music has always been an important thing to me. It's the only reason why I picked up the piano in the 7th grade. I spent a lot of time looking up Synthesia YouTube videos, and once I could play "Dire, Dire Docks" and a simplified "Frozen Hillside", my interest in playing other VGM on other instruments skyrocketed from there! I wouldn't call myself much of a composer right now, but now I tend to work on VGM renditions and even make my own stuff once in a while.
You know, I have hopes that VGM can someday become more accepted. I sort of try to spread that kind of fondness when I play at talent shows and stuff. It makes me happy when someone gets super surprised when I tell them the music came from a video game. :D
I probably haven't noticed much of Pulkkinen's work yet, so I'll probably listen later. I can't say I agree too much with his statements concerning the whole "hit-tracks = new audiences" thing, but I'd love to be able to buy soundtracks freely someday!



StaticWind commented on Ubisoft To Release Petz Beach And Petz Country...:

Ah, I can already see it now...
"We decided that we are going back on 3DS exclusivity and porting these new iterations to the PlayStation Portable to maximize availability. Additionally, the 3DS versions will not receive the long awaited Scuba Diving and Battleship DLCs, so we are very sorry. Please know that we will work as hard as we can to make the 3DS versions the best ones!"
@sillygostly 11/10. Will remember forever. :D



StaticWind commented on Gallery: Enjoy a Cuteness Overload in These Ca...:

@JaxonH Whoops! Perhaps I should have been more specific. Sorry.
I meant the Wii U version. Believe me, that game comes before anything else — I've waited too long for it! I meant to say that the Wii U version shouldn't be the last game I buy this year, as I didn't plan on buying anything else because of so much money spending. Captain Toad is just capturing my interests more than before. ^^



StaticWind commented on Video: Catch Up With Nintendo's Super Smash Br...:

Ah, it would have been great to compete in the closest one near me. Gah, curse those "first come, first serve" rules!
I swear, I'll be there plenty of hours earlier if they do one for the Wii U version. I think I could have at least survived a good while before I lose. :D



StaticWind commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Release Dates Conf...:

Awesome-sauce! After all of those things we saw that hinted towards its release on the 21st, I would have been surprised if it wasn't. I even marked my calender long ago. :D
It sucks that the rest are getting it on Dec. 5th, though. I don't think I can survive that long.



StaticWind commented on Limited GameCube Controller Edition of Super S...:

It looks nice! Seeing as how I already have at least three GameCube controllers, getting the adapter would only be easier on me when it comes to group play. I've had this pre-ordered for quite a while now. Can't wait to finally have it in my hands when the day comes. ^^



StaticWind commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

Voted for Castle Siege. I always loved that stage and the music there. Fighting on that stage while listening to "Preparing to Advance" was always the best! :D
Knowing the Wii U version will have a bunch of music, I'm excited to see what'll be available! ^^



StaticWind commented on Guide: How To Beat Everyone At Super Smash Bro...:

Step 1: Spam Pikachu's thunderbolt. :D
I guess they needed more practice, since one of my friends fell off of the stage when I did that. Apparently, he didn't like shielding because he thinks its being cowardly. Well, I guess that's why you gotta live life on the ledge, then!
...I'll stop now.



StaticWind commented on Atlus Just Can't Stop Offering Discounts, With...:

Etrian Odyssey Untold?! Well, I decided to skip out on quite a few games this year to save money, and although Etrian Odyssey IV is awesome, it took me 90 hours to finish. That, and I prefer physical copies. Gah! Now I have to decide! T.T



StaticWind commented on Talking Point: The Super Smash Bros. 3DS Demo ...:

It certainly has! Seeing the massive amount of comments on the site and others yesterday was proof enough. I'm still a wee bit disappointed that I wasn't lucky enough to get one while reaching the qualifications, but oh well.
With my usual bad luck, I'd shiver if they announced something similar for the Wii U version.



StaticWind commented on Preview: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Go...:

Great read! I'm really anxious to see how the game looks on-screen. I haven't seen any gameplay of the game in-person, so I have no idea how it looks like. I recall Mr. Sakurai saying something along the lines of "Web posts of the 3DS version doesn't do it justice", so I'm a bit curious.
I'm still concerned about how it feels. I've always played in a considerably rough-ish manner with Super Smash Bros., so I'm still trying to remember to be as gentle as possible. ^^'



StaticWind commented on Weirdness: There Are Super Smash Bros. for Nin...:

Wow. The codes getting on ebay isn't a surprise, but it would seriously be quite strange to pay that much for a free demo. Although, I'm certain someone will buy one of 'em. Dedication, I guess.
I'd give away codes if I ever got 'em. Knowing my friends, they just might get bored and toss 'em away soon.



StaticWind commented on Demo for Super Smash Bros. 3DS Announced for N...:

Wow! This is the most amount of comments I've ever seen on this site! I thought the last Club Nintendo demo thing wouldn't be surpassed.
I met the requirements, but I didn't get one. It's a bummer, since whenever they do this kinda thing, I never get lucky! Oh well. Time to pretend the demo doesn't exist for another week. :P



StaticWind commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

Wow, I didn't think something like this would spark so much complaining. I can't say I agree with the opinion, though. It is a bit odd in a Mario game, sure, but seeing as how that kind of thing doesn't come in often, it's pretty wacky in its own way. Don't worry, the magic is still there. :D



StaticWind commented on Super Smash Bros. For 3DS Will Feature A Music...:

This is probably my favorite update. I've always loved the music the Super Smash Bros. series has to offer, and video game music in general. Now I'll have to decide whether to play normally or listen to the music on long trips.



StaticWind commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

...Oh. So those are the rewards. Well, I already have some of those games, seeing as how they helped me reach platinum status in the first place. The rest of them are ones I don't care for or would have gotten already if I wanted 'em. I'll just get one of those large retail games and give it to a friend or something. I wish they had offered something unique instead. Ya'know, something the average consumer can't get.
You know, after about a year's worth of detailed surveys and registrations. Oh well. I wonder what the rewards will be next year.
And wow, look at all of the comments! o_O



StaticWind commented on Watch: Super Smash Bros. Melee Evo 2014 Finals...:

The tournament was great! Oh geez. Axe's Pikachu kept me outta my chair! I get all hyped up just thinking about that match! :D
The end was pretty emotional. Sad to see a great commentator retire, but it definitely isn't goodbye forever.



StaticWind commented on Interview: Pro Smash Competitors Armada & Mew2...:

"...he’s one of my best friends..."
I must have been living under a rock or something. I never knew. :P
It's nice to see their thoughts on the game, and I'm glad they're not as ridiculously dismissive as some that I've seen as of late.
In So Cal.? Sweet! I'll probably force myself to stop being lazy and go to one if it's not too far. I don't usually go to tournaments, so that needs to change.



StaticWind commented on New Japanese Law Bans Child Abuse Images, Yet ...:

@Cresartist Agreed. It's like how many say that video games cause violence.
If anything, I have never understood child pageants. I find them cringe-worthy...but aside from that, if something like that is allowed, then I don't see why an artistic medium, that uses characters that do not represent actual people, needs to be enforced as such.



StaticWind commented on New Japanese Law Bans Child Abuse Images, Yet ...:

The inclusion of these rules in anime, comics, and video games probably isn't necessary. Using Senran Kagura Burst, for example, it's set in a fictional world. A game such as that shouldn't encourage child abuse. There's a fine line that separates fiction from reality. It'd be best to take a moment and see that line, for people that do act on this sort of thing.
As far as its content goes with the whole nudity thing, I wouldn't say it's any form of child abuse. Ninja females with supernatural strengths =/= female children. The ideas of all of these scantily-dressed females and whatnot transition to a topic that can relate. As tasteless as I see way too many over-sexualized characters, there's no reason to limit one's creativity with such a law.
Now, actual child abuse images, of course, were rightfully removed.
